Olaplex #3. It’s not a conditioner, it’s a treatment and it will really stop the breaking.

 I’d use a cleansing conditioner instead of shampoo all the time. Joico has some good ones.

I think you’ve got a couple of challenges 1- cause less damage 2- reverse the look of damage on your hair.

1) Use less shampoo. Mix your shampoo 1/3 shampoo w/ 2/3 conditioner.  Wash with that and only lather once.

2) Warm oil (Extra virgin olive oil or jojoba or coconut) and add it to your conditioner 1x/ week, let it sit for 15 mins before rinsing out.    Another suggestion: Spray a hair restructurizer (essentially, a protein spray) on damp hair 1x/ week.

You still need to use regular shampoo given the situation. Washing with only conditioner is not a good option because it would defeat the purpose of your daily shower which is to ensure you get any possible Covid 19 contamination off of you. 

Keep the shampoo, and after your shower spritz some coconut oil in your hair, works like a charm!!!

Olaplex treatments once or twice a week should definitely help – make sure you follow the directions because a lot of people don’t and then complain that it doesn’t work well.  I love It’s a 10 Miracle Leave in with Keratin as well.  I apply it on damp hair (don’t rub your hair with a towel, wrap it in a microfiber hair towel), and add argon oil to the ends before brushing and air drying.  Skip heat styling and wear your hair in protective styles while you’re at work.  Good luck!

I wear a scrub cap all day at work now, so my hair is not exposed. You can get a looser style so you can tie your hair up in a bun or ponytail under the cap. I stll shampoo daily but use only a minimal amount of shampoo.

Can you get some jojoba oil? I put a little of that in my hair after showering so it gets coated a bit…seems to help the dryness.

Another vote for Olaplex, it’s a miracle product!

Also, thank you so much for the hard work you’re doing on the front lines. Can’t be easy and I really appreciate all of the front line workers!

Oh what is your hair texture? Curly or wavy? Straight? Straight thin or straight thick? Easy to comb or no? This will help. If you have very thick curls I’ll have different advice than thick straight hair.

Good advice above, but wanted to add- if you’re using a hair dryer you should stop and just let your hair air dry.

One more for Olaplex! But you definitely need to follow the directions as written or it’s nothing special. And avoid blow drying and using heat styling tools as much as you can right now. 

And I’d like to add my thanks for your service particularly during these times.
